The contest for the All-England Lawn Tennis Championship was decided on Monday. Mr. E. Renshaw, who was successful on Thursday week at Wimbledon, had to meet his brother, Mr. W. Renshaw, the winner in 1881, who, after an interesting contest, again won by three sets to two. The challenge cup has to be won thrice in succession, and should Mr. W. Renshaw repeat his success next year the trophy will become his absolute property.
